This week, the inspirational story of the rescued Chilean miners continued right here at Magic Kingdom Park with a parade and celebration on Main Street, U.S.A. We shared some of the highlights of their six-night vacation to Disney and even how they inspired a group of special children.

And did you also see that we started a new photo series on the Disney Parks Blog? Disneyland Chief Photographer Paul Hiffmeyer began his “night spinning” series at the Astro Orbitor.

  • From the life bottom line to the life top line(not exactly, but maybe, because Disney is so-called the happiest place in the world), those Chilean miners have been going through a moment of life changing.
    GOOD for THEM.

  • Is there anywhere I can see pictures or video of the construction and planning of any of the parks at Walt Disney World?

  • I saw the picture of Walt’s apartment and thought that was cool. I would really like to see Club 33! Also some more info on Carsland would be cool!
